Hurricane Helms Reacts To The Death Of WWE Star Rosey

Matt Anoa'i, a former WWE tag team champion and member of the famed Anoa'i Samoan wrestling dynasty, died Monday at age 47.

Sports Illustrated said Tuesday that Rosey's run with WWE was fairly brief, from 2002 to 2006, followed by a short stint in Japan. He was previously hospitalized for congestive heart failure in 2014.

The family of Anoa'i released a statement that was shared by WWE.

While Reigns himself hasn't posted anything on social media or released a statement, the WWE and his family have put together a joint statement about the former performer and posted it to the company's website for further information.

During the daily White House press briefing, Spicer incorrectly claimed on Tuesday that Hitler didn't use chemical weapons during World War II.

Rosey's time with the WWE gained attention when he joined Three Minute Warning with his cousin Eddie Fatu.

Rosey is the older brother of current WWE superstar Roman Reigns and the son of WWE Hall of Famer Sika. "Rosey then formed a beloved superhero duo with The Hurricane, which culminated in his first World Tag Team Championship reign".

They added: "Please respect the privacy of his children and family as they mourn the loss of this kind, loving, gentle man, who was a father, son, brother and a superhero to us all".

The team would go onto win tag team gold in 2005, after defeating La Resistance, but would later drop the titles to Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch in September of that year.

'Our family appreciates your prayers and continued support during this very hard time'.

William Regal said that Rosey was a lovely man, and he extended his condolences to the Anoa'i family.

We at Wrestling Rumors extend our deepest condolences and sympathies to the Anoa'i family during this hard time.

Rosey was recently working with his father for a Pensacola, Florida, wrestling promotion, ESPN reported.
